About Rapid Recovery MLS Laser for Pain Management & Wound Healing
Rapid Recovery MLS Laser uses innovative Multi-Wave Laser technology to improve cellular function, enhances tissue recovery, decreases inflammation and decreases pain.
The treatment works by penetrating the tissue with multiple wavelength, low-level laser energy or light-emitting diodes to alter and improve cellular function. This improvement results in decreased inflammation, improved tissue repair, and faster healing.
Rapid Recovery MLS Laser Therapy uses two wavelengths to provide synchronized and continuous energy to stimulate cellular function and decrease pain. When cellular function is improved, this in turn decreases inflammation, stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation and decreases fluid build-up. Pulsed laser emissions, on the other hand, have a practically immediate effect on pain, since they are able to induce analgesia, interfering with the transmission of the pain impulse to the higher brain centers, but they are less effective at treating inflammation and swelling. The combination of the multi-wave achieves an optimal effect to provide recovery and relief.
Who Could Be a Candidate?
Rapid Recovery MLS laser therapy improves pain and inflammation associated with any type of injury or wound that needs healing. Arthritis, Sports Injuries, Tendon & Ligament Injuries, Back & Joint Pain Muscle Sprains & Strains, Tendonitis, Wounds, and Post-Surgical Swelling are effectively treated. Unlike pharmacological treatments, there are no known negative side effects with multi-wave light based laser therapy. The treatment is FDA approved, safe, and effective.
Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
What Are The Procedure Techniques?
The patient typically receives the treatment laying down on a treatment bed. The laser settings and treatment positioning is prescribed by the surgeon or nurse. The laser is programmed and set in place. The laser will complete the set treatment while the patient is relaxed and comfortable.
Patients can return to work immediately.
How Long Is The Treatment ?
The treatment takes, on average, about 15-20 minutes based on the number of areas you are interested in having treated. The best results are experienced when patients follow the recommended protocol which is typically six consecutive treatments over a set period of time determined at the time of the consultation.
Rapid Recovery MLS laser for wound healing after surgery may be different than Rapid Recovery MLS laser for joint inflammation or other conditions. There is no recovery, in fact; patients will often say they have immediate relief of pain in the treatment area.
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgeons is the first and only Cosmetic Practice in the Midwest to administer Multi-Wave low-level light based therapy.
Dr. Chernoff has treated multiple patients and found that post surgical healing time is cut in half, which allows more people to reach their cosmetic goals and return to normal function sooner.
Additionally, our patients have experienced significant physical improvements. One patient we treated had torn her knee meniscus and was struggling to walk. She followed our treatment protocol, one treatment per day for six consecutive days. After each treatment, she noticed significant improvement. She now is able to comfortably walk up and down stairs and resume her exercise routine.
